It’s always a beautiful time coming to Vida Homes. We are greeted with the warmest of welcomes and continue to always receive first class service from all staff during our stay. We enjoy the diving, the beautiful pools and grounds. It’s always fun to adventure to many other places close by too - so many places to explore. Vida Homes is a great base. Thanks to the wonderful staff in all areas - the reception, in the office, at the bar, the housekeeping staff, the restaurant and the grounds/landscaping/pool staff - you all do such a great job to make our stay so perfect. We will be back :).

PS it was so very special to meet legend karate champion and international motivational speaker Mike Stone while he was taking his class through their exercises and meditation just outside our door. Wow!! Mike lead the class in understanding the key to happiness, love and abundance. We captured the action and listened to his wise words. A little piece of unexpected and special bliss.

I love coming to Vida Homes every year it feels like a home away from home. Staff are courteous and always helpful, the apartments are immaculate and the grounds are so beautiful. One of my favourite things to do is catch the most beautiful light over the water just meters from my door.

I believe this resort is one of the best resorts in Philippines. It’s located right next to the Lucas Sanctuary, a nice diving spot. Hotel manager is very attentive and is a good problem-solver — she helped us figure out a way to go to Oslob for whale sharks watching. Breakfast is served at Pura Vida which is the hotel right next to Vida Homes Condo Resort. There’s a dive shop located inside Pura Vida with experienced and excellent diving instructors.

The two weeks we stayed at Vida Homes in November was our second trip there, and that tells you more than anything about our holiday - you only return when your trip has been exceptional. The condos themselves are modern and maintained in pristine condition, and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is beyond merely professional. My wife, son and I completed our Advanced Open Water dive qualifications at the associated dive shop where the quality of instruction, equipment and facilities made us very much at ease. Great diving including marine sanctuaries, corals, whale sharks, turtles, drift diving, ............!! Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Room tip: All units are fine :-)
